(WTVY) The popular dating app Bumble is moving to prohibit users from posting images of firearms.
Bumble announced the ban in a Monday blog post.
The move comes in the wake of the school shooting that left 17 people dead in Florida last month.
The app will make an exception for people with military and law enforcement backgrounds.
Bumble will allow those users to post images of themselves carrying guns while in uniform.
The company says users will be able to appeal to have deleted images restored, allowing some wiggle room for hobbyists and competitive shooters.
